I was wondering something related a setup I was planning to do.
I am redo doing my small vmware network to change to a better box as my iscsi target. Just like my old box this one has 2 gigabit network interfaces. My ESXi box also has 2 interfaces that I dedicate to for storage.
The problem is I don't have a switch that supports jumbo frames and load balancing. Its just a dumb gigabit switch.
My question is, if I connect the 2 interfaces from my iscsi target into the 2 interface on my ESXi box will they still load balance over both interfaces? Or because there is no switch the interfaces will just send from one end to the other?
I hope this makes sense, been up for a long time not all here.
Thanks in advance.
